Stuff it: UN human rights chief says Trump’s attack on media “dangerous”

zeid raad al hussein

Zeid all of a sudden concerned with “human rights”

“Freedom of the press” doesn’t give them the right to intentionally misquote and represent what Trump says. Why don’t you stick to what you know best: wasting U.S. taxpayer money.

From NY Post: US President Donald Trump’s criticism of journalists amounts to an attack on the freedom of the press and could provoke violence against reporters, the United Nations’ human rights chief said Wednesday.

Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein said Trump had also made worrying remarks about women, Mexicans and Muslims, and he went on to question the president’s approach to immigration and decision to pardon former Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio.

There was no immediate response from the White House on the wide-ranging rebuke of Trump’s repeated references to the “fake media” and some of his other statements and decisions.

“It’s really quite amazing when you think that freedom of the press, not only sort of a cornerstone of the US Constitution but very much something that the United States defended over the years, is now itself under attack from the president,” the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said.

“It’s sort of a stunning turnaround. And ultimately the sequence is a dangerous one,” he told a news conference in Geneva.

Referring to the New York Times, Washington Post and CNN, he added: “To call these news organizations ’fake’ does tremendous damage and to refer to individual journalists in this way, I have to ask the question, is this not an incitement for others to attack journalists?”

Zeid voiced concern that a journalist from the Guardian had been “assaulted in the United States most recently” but gave no details.

Trump rounded on journalists last week, calling them “truly dishonest people” and criticizing their coverage of a white supremacist-organized rally in Virginia and the political fallout from his comments that violence there was caused by “many sides.”

Nazi salutes, swastikas, anti-Semitic slurs and racist references to African-Americans had “no place in the United States or beyond,” Zeid said in his first comments on the events in Charlottesville.

Trump has also made worrying remarks about women, Mexicans and Muslims, “mocked a person with disabilities publicly” and issued a directive on a transgender ban in the military, he said.

“The president prides himself as a taboo breaker, indeed his supporters see him as such. But at the time I expressed my feeling that this was grossly irresponsible, because it has consequences, it emboldens those who may think similarly to sharpen their assaults on these communities,” he said.

Zeid voiced deep concern at Trump’s pardon of Arpaio, who was convicted of criminal contempt in a racial profiling case that highlighted tensions over immigration policy.

“Does the president support racial profiling, of Latinos in particular, does he support abuse of prisoners? Arpaio referred at one stage to the open-air prison that he set up as a concentration camp, he later recanted, said it was a joke,” Zeid said. “Does the president support this? These actions have consequences.”

Zeid, comparing the leadership role of a US president to a bus driver, said: ”I almost feel that the president is driving the bus of humanity and we’re careening down a mountain path.

“And in taking these measures, at least from a human rights perspective, it seems to be reckless driving.”

Arizona inmates punished with bread-and-water meals for defacing flags

joe

Sun News: Inmates at six Arizona prisons who defaced American flags placed in their cells are being punished with bread-and-water meals for seven days.

Controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio, who manages the facilities, said the 38 inmates tore the flags down and wrote on them, threw them in the toilet or stepped on them.

“It’s a disgrace to those who have fought for our county,” Arpaio said in a press release.

The flags are part of a new program that has inmates listen to the Star-Spangled Banner every morning and God Bless America every night. Arpaio has also segregated inmates who are veterans so they get “unique programming” and “help associated with their needs.”

Arpaio, who is reportedly considering running for governor, has been accused of abusing prisoners and ignoring sex crimes. A federal court ruled last spring that his deputies racially profiled Latino drivers, although Arpaio has appealed the decision.

Way to go Joe!

BOMBSHELL: Document Examiner Tied To Obama Defense Attorney Says Birth Certificate Is 100% Fraud

http://minutemennews.com           9 June 2013

"Thought Bubble" Damn you George Bush!

“Thought Bubble” Damn you George Bush!

Reed Hayes is a court qualified handwriting and document examiner whose business is located in Honolulu, Hawaii. He has nearly 40 years of handwriting related experience, and has worked as an international consultant and speaker. Never heard of him? Well, Hayes is the Certified Document Examiner (CDE) who produced the 40 page opinion referenced in the Mike Zullo affidavit that was submitted to the Alabama Supreme Court in the Obama eligibility case and his report concluded that the Obama birth certificate image, located at WhiteHouse.gov is a complete fabrication.

PPSimmons reports:

The rabid followers of the “O” (Obots) have rushed to denounce Reed Hayes as a “quack.” However, one might be surprised to learn that one of Hayes’ clients listed in the Expert Witness Directory at this link is an attorney with Perkins-Coie Law Firm.

Perkins – Coie is the law practice whose partners have provided Obama’s personal defense against all birth certificate and natural born citizen litigation over the past five years.  Hmmmmm.  Very interesting indeed.

If it turns out that Sheriff Arpaio is successful in getting Congress to investigate the authenticity of Obama’s BC, the Perkins-Coie legal team, who will be defending Obama, will be hard pressed to simply dismiss Reed Hayes as a “quack.”  This fact will be especially significant now that it is a revealed and proven truth that members of the Perkins – Coie firm have used Hayes as an expert witness! Their own prior cases, where Hayes was used as a witness, would be severely compromised if they use Saul Alinski-styled mocking attacks on Hayes.

It has been reported that Mr. Hayes has been hounded by Obama operatives to discover the details of his 40-page forensic analysis of the Obama pdf birth certificate. He has been referring them to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse, who now legally own his report, for further information.

I also found it interesting that someone sided with the Obama administration and attempted to bring up dirt on Hayes by pointing out that he was a homosexual with a “partner,” who is now deceased. Isn’t that interesting? Why would that be considered “dirt” from the Obama side? Isn’t he the one telling us that is “normal” and isn’t he the one helping to push the homosexual agenda along? Ah, the hypocrisy!

Mike Zullo responded to the revelation from Hayes, “This ought to serve as a warning shot across the bow to the naysayers of our criminal investigation in the Obama fraud case. The impressive credentials of Mr. Hayes, and the fact that he has testified in court cases for Perkins-Coie coupled with the fact that Mr. Hayes is a registered Democrat, demonstrates the integrity of our investigation and our conviction that we possess incontrovertible evidence to back our case. It must be emphasized that we possess much more evidence similar to this revelation that we have not yet released for public information.”

 

 

U.S. County Sheriffs say “no” to Obama gun control

As the Shadow of Tyranny creeps ever more and more over America, the U.S. County Sheriff is the line in the sand.

The county sheriff is the one who can say to the feds, “Beyond these bounds you shall not pass.” This is not only within the scope of the sheriff’s authority; it’s the sheriff’s sworn duty.

More and more of America’s sheriffs are saying “No” to the Obama regime’s gun control agenda.

The list below is from CSPOA (Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association) — and more sheriffs are signing onto it by the day. If your sheriff isn’t on the list, ask him/her why!!!

I will be adding names to this list as more sheriffs join this cause. Names added to the list after I’ve published this post are colored green.

A win for Sheriff Joe: Feds end investigation; no charges filed

Diogenes, the ancient Greek philosopher of Stoicism, is famous for carrying a lit lamp around town, claiming to be looking for just one honest man. Well, we have found that man, and he is Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Why?

Because the POS’s Department of (In)Justice tried to intimidate and harass him by launching a criminal investigation into Arpaio’s alleged financial misconduct. But on Friday, August 31, 2012, the federal government closed its investigation of nearly two years. More than that, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said no charges will be filed against the good sheriff.

According to NBC News, the investigation had begun in November 2010 at the behest of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to examine alleged financial improprieties by the county sheriff and his deputies.

A federal criminal inquiry into several of those matters was concluded last summer with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona declining to initiate criminal charges. Maricopa County authorities were informed on Friday that federal prosecutors had likewise declined to bring charges in connection with allegations that the sheriff’s office had misused county credit cards or misspent money from jail facilities excise taxes. Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann Birmingham Scheel said in a statement that her office “is closing its investigation into allegations of criminal conduct by current and former members of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.”

Arpaio, 80, who returned from the Republican National Convention on Friday night, said he was “very happy” with decision and that “I send my appreciation to the federal government for their hard work in clearing my office.”

However, a separate federal investigation since 2008 relating to allegations of civil rights abuses by Arpaio’s office is continuing. Arpaio has denied any wrongdoing and said he would cooperate with investigators.

In July of this year, Arpaio denied in testimony in a class-action lawsuit that his deputies targeted people because of the color of their skin. He was testifying whether police can target illegal immigrants without racially profiling Hispanic citizens and legal residents. “I am against anyone racial profiling … today as in my 50 years in law enforcement,” Arpaio told the court during cross-examination.

Arpaio is also known for outfitting county jail inmates in pink underwear, claiming the pink shorts are less likely to be smuggled out of jail and sold on the black market, and for housing inmates in a Tent City jail in Phoenix, even when Sonoran Desert summer temperatures soar to 115 degrees.

First voted into office in 1992 and reelected five times, Arpaio is seeking re-election to a sixth term as sheriff in November.

In two successive press conferences in March and Julyof this year, Arpaio announced that the extensive investigation undertaken by his all-volunteer Cold Case Posse found compelling evidence that the image of Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April 2011 was “definitely” a computer-generated forgery. Arpaio called this matter an imminent threat to U.S. national security and immigration laws. (Read more about this here.)

None of that made any difference because both the media and Congress ignored his team’s findings.

Dem Sen. Feinstein: Obama White House source of national security leaks

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio isn’t the only person calling Obama a threat to U.S. national security.

Now a Democratic U.S. senator, Diane Feinstein of California, is pointing her finger at Obama’s White House as the source of recent leaks of classified national security information.

Tony Lee reports for Breitbart.com, July 24, 2012, that Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on Monday said the White House appears to be responsible for leaking classified national security information.

‘‘I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks,’’ Feinstein said at a World Affairs Council forum, according to the Associated Press (AP).

Republicans, such as Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), have accused the Obama administration of leaking national security information to win votes. Specifically, McCain mentioned the computer virus program that disabled some of Iran’s nuclear facilities — and other sensitive national security matters.

Tom Donilon

The uproar intensified when the The New York Times ran a story titled, “Obama order sped up wave of cyberattacks against Iran.” The Times has also published stories on Obama’s “kill lists” with sources that were all affiliated with the Obama administration. The Times has denied that the Obama administration leaked information to them.

Democrat Pat Caddell has pointed the finger at National Security Adviser Tom Donilon as the primary leaker of sensitive national security information.

Sheriff Joe to testify at Florida Obama eligibility hearing tomorrow

A Florida court will have a hearing tomorrow (Monday) morning, beginning at 9 a.m., on Voeltz v. Obama — the latest challenge to Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be on the November ballot.

Judge Terry Lewis, best known for presiding over the 2000 Bush v. Gore election dispute, will consider arguments from attorney Larry Klayman and attorneys for the Obama campaign. The hearing will focus on Obama’s claim to be a “natural born citizen,”” as required under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution. Monday’s event is just to hear a motion for dismissal and debate the nature of the “natural born Citizen” requirement for the Presidency. Win or lose, this case will likely be appealed and will drag out much dirty laundry.

Florida is a must-win “swing state” for “Obama.” If he is not on the ballot, he simply cannot win. If he is successfully challenged here, or even nearly-successfully, it will create a host of problems in other states.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio will testify for the plaintiff.

WND-TV will provide gavel-to-gavel, live video coverage of the hearing.

Sign up now to get access to WND-TV’s special free, live-stream page prior to the hearing. After you sign up, WND will notify you via e-mail how to access the live-streaming of the hearing.
